Replacement back-box help please!

Post by Rubyoptics »

Hello again all!

Sadly, my exhaust back-box has been eaten through, and whilst the car now sounds like a 7 litre V8, it's also rather embarrasing! Looking for a replacement and just wanted to know if a standard S16 206 Gti back-box will fit the CC?? I know the mid-pipe is different but i'm fairly sure the back-box mounting is the same as the non-CC car?

According to the Service box, the 2.0 138 CC, the 2.0 138 3door, and the GT all use different rear boxes. It does not say what the differences are.

You might struggle to find a universal silencer due to the way it connects to the main pipe and the position of the tail-pipe in the bumper cutout.

If this:-

"2003 2.0. Dyno'd @ 134BHP. 2.5" full stainless exhaust system, lexus style rear lights, LED sidelights and interiors. Latest mod - Full stainless steel Group N gear linkages."

applies to your car, then I would think a standard box wont fit anyway.
Cheers Col.

After raplacing the back box on mine and having it blow again within a few years, I've now gone for custom built stainless steel. It'll outlive the rest of the car & should work out cheaper in the long run, in fact it was cheaper than I expected. Just have a look for local custom exhausts.
